EPICA RELEASE FIRST STUDIO CLIP FOR THE QUANTUM ENIGMA

EPICA RELEASE FIRST STUDIO CLIP FOR NEW ALBUM - 2014-03-03

2014-03-03 - Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA have launched the first episode of their behind-the-scenes look at the recording process of the band’s sixth studio album The Quantum Enigma. The video also includes the first clips of new music from the new album, which will be released this spring in North America. Watch the footage on the Nuclear Blast YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QYlycb1gIY

EPICA recorded The Quantum Enigma with producer Joost van den Broek (REVAMP, AFTER FOREVER) at the Sandlane Recording Facilities in The Netherlands. The album has been mixed by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HATESPHERE) and features artwork by longtime collaborator Stephan Heilemann.

Whereas 2013’s massive Retrospect performance captured EPICA’s past decade as one of the leading bands in the symphonic metal scene, The Quantum Enigma marks the beginning of a new era for the band: modern, heavy, and without compromises.

EPICA guitar player Isaac Delahaye shares the following about the recording experience for this new album:

"The whole process of writing and recording TQE was extremely refreshing for us. Instead of preparing the album in our home studios separately, we rehearsed the songs together in the studio. Just like any other band, you could say, but as EPICA is located in three different countries, this is a little more complicated for us. The direct interaction between us has certainly lifted up the quality of the songs, as no detail was left unspoken. Definitely worth taking some time off from touring! As far as songwriting goes, the main focus was groove and melody."

The Quantum Enigma track listing is:
01 - Originem
02 - The Second Stone
03 - The Essence Of Silence
04 - Victims Of Contingency
05 - Sense Without Sanity [The Impervious Code]
06 - Unchain Utopia
07 - The Fifth Guardian [Interlude]
08 - Chemical Insomnia
09 - Reverence [Living In The Heart]
10 - Omen [The Ghoulish Malady]
11 - Canvas Of Life
12 - Natural Corruption
13 - The Quantum Enigma [Kingdom Of Heaven, Part II ]

After almost a year of absence from the live arena, EPICA will return to the stage for their album release show on April 30th in The Netherlands. View more EPICA live dates on the band’s official Facebook page.
